Ed. Note: In a Pickle closed down at Eastern Market back in March.

Thanks to Jesse for sending the devastating news from Number 1 Sons:

“Hello Number 1 Sons and Daughters,

Number 1 Sons will be closing at the end of the month. Our last weekend at markets will be August 28th and 29th. Unfortunately, we’re unable to continue operating in our current space. Our final market schedule is at number1sons.com.

Since 2012, we’ve made pickled and fermented food and drink that we’ve brought to our neighbors at farmers’ markets across the Washington DC area. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

We live in Near North East, in the middle of 4 empty houses and a massive restaurant. Rats are becoming an increasingly alarming problem in our alley and now our front yards. We have burrows, nests (including under the hood or our cars) and feces everywhere. The rats have trampled a “highway” across our grass, there are so many. Last night I set 7 traps outside on our property, our usual routine. This morning I found Read More

“Dear PoPville,

Sitting in Logan Circle reading a book – guy with giant amp pulls up on bike blasting music and sits on a bench. Zero social awareness. Everyone else in the park gets up and leaves. What’s the end game here? Attention? Other people noticing? Of course nobody is gonna say anything we all just have to find somewhere else to go. 311 can’t do anything until after dark. Frustrating since it’s a nice day and Logan has plenty of seating and shade.”

“Dear PoPville,

There are many that live/work/commute near the Columbia Heights busy block of 14th and Irving St NW. About twice a week (Wednesdays and Fridays) there are 2 individuals who yell into an amplified speaker by the Columbia Heights metro and bus stop near the Truist Bank & ATM, and D’Vines. They can be heard for blocks and for hours on end, and if one is waiting for the bus, one’s ears ring for quite some time – it is that loud. Having lived in the area and in DC for decades, I love and expect city noise, but again – these 2 particular individuals don’t just use an amplified speaker, they yell into an amplified speaker, way above and beyond others who preach, sing, or share their thoughts in the neighborhood.

Asking politely to lower the volume does no good. Getting assistance with DCRA is not an easy ask even though their own regulations state: Read More

“Dear PoPville,

Our house in Dupont Circle has been infested with rats since January, and we’re at our wits end. We keep traps out and have tried to fill holes in the wall where we can, but we can’t seem to keep them at bay. Our landlord has an exterminator on retainer, but he’s useless- comes maybe once a month, sets a trap or two and leaves.

Can anyone suggest a pest removal company that actually investigates the problem to find the root cause? Read More
